Build a Life, Don’t Live One
I recently saw this video of Ashton Kutcher’s acceptance speech at the Teen Choice Awards on August 11, 2013. It was an amazing speech and I totally loved it! He talked a lot about life.
It wasn’t really an acceptance speech at all, rather he gave some great life advice to thousands of screaming fans, and told a little more about himself.
He mentioned that Ashton was his middle name. His real name is Chris, but it was changed when he became an actor at 19.
Some of the things Chris talked about were:
He said, “I believe that opportunity looks a lot like hard work.”
He talks about carrying shingles up to roofs with his father, doing dirty dishes, and sweeping factory floors. “I’ve never had a job in my life that I was better than.”
Kutcher says every job he’s had was just a stepping stone to his next job, and that he “Never quit my job until I had my next job.“
“The sexiest thing in the entire world?” Kutcher asked. “Is being really smart. …And being thoughtful. …And being generous. Everything else is just crap! It’s crap that people try to sell to you to make you feel like less. So don’t buy it.”
Build a Life
“Don’t just live your life-build one.”
Kutcher said that when you grow up, you tend to think the world around you is the way it is.
You try to learn things, not get into too much trouble, grow up, maybe have a family, and generally live a good life.
But, as Steve Jobs said, “Life can be a lot broader than that when you realize one simple thing: everything around us that we call life is made up of people that are no smarter than you. What are you going to do with your life? You can either live within the one others have created, or create your own that people can live in. What can you invent, do, change, that will impact the world?”
It was an amazing speech that immediately went viral, receiving well over a million hits. Many kids were inspired and Chris gave everyone hope with his words.
I hope you enjoy the video.
